Air conditioning for women: A terrible injustice

Fuck those bitches. They didn't invent air conditioning!
How to win friends and garner dozens of upvotes in the Men's Rights subreddit on Reddit: Bash out a barely coherent stream-of-consciousness rant suggesting that women are ungrateful bitches because they don't mine coal, and didn't invent air conditioning or hunt mammoths. Of course, no one posting in the Men's Rights subreddit has done any of those things either, but apparently everyone with a penis gets automatic credit for them.

Here's the post, from some dude called TheGrendler:

We men built a nice safe world for you all the the coal-mines of death, roads, railroads, bridges and tall office buildings. Its $1,000,000 spent per death of a man on a large dangerous project on average now you can just 9-5 it and call it a day in air-conditioned and heated safety. Forget about the wars we died in and the sacrifices made just ignore history or is it now hersorty? You are accruing the benefits without ever having to pay the price you still don't have to sign up for the draft and who will protect you? The Sex and the City girls will fight off the North Koreans with their Manolo Blahniks?

Men gave you this modern world now you take it for granted we hunted the mammoth to feed you we died in burning buildings and were gassed in the trenches but that was just for fun right?

How quick and conveniently you forget who made this possible.

We gave you Leonardo da Vinci, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy not to mention countless others, Jonas Salk saved half the world from death and you just piss on it all.

Shame on you,

You hedonistic, narcissistic, sociopath metastasizing cancer.

Whatever happened to live together die alone?

Damn you ungrateful sluts for enjoying air conditioning, despite the fact that it was invented by a dude! (Probably. I didn't check.) Only dudes should enjoy things invented by other dudes! Jonas Salk was a dude! Only dudes should get the polio vaccine! How do you like your polio, you fancy-shoe wearing bitches!!!?? You should have thought of that before you went and didn't invent the motherfucking polio vaccine!!!

And you can just forget about reading any motherfucking Dostoevsky! Only dudes can read Dostoevsky! You filthy whores stick to Jane Austen!

Sorry, I got carried away.

  1. Yes because without women all of those things would have happened.

  2. Haha, this is the sort of ridiculousness that emerges from a gender war mind set. "I own the accomplishments of anyone with a penis!"

    We don't get to claim the accomplishments of everyone of our race, gender or sexuality. But this is what is tempting about the camp philosophy. Haven't accomplished anything? That's okay, claim the accomplishments of your gender, nationality, or race.

  3. Yeah...

    This particular MRA meme gets on my last nerve. Throughout history, the health and well being of any civilization depended...ultimately...on the unsalaried labor of women.

    MRA's appear to believe that the historical record shows women sat around eating chocolate and leeching off the labors of men.

    The historical record begs to differ.

  4. Ah, the good old days, when a man and his son could play Battleship as the women folk did chores in the background. Awesome!

  5. "You are accruing the benefits without ever having to pay the price"

    Maybe its my own preconceptions about MRAs talking here, but dollars to donuts says the guy who wrote this was white, too.

    Or at least living in the Western World.

  6. This reminds me of all the tea baggers claiming they were going to "go Galt" after Obama got elected. Because of course they had so much in common with an almost superhuman fictional character who invented a perpetual motion machine. Sorry buddy, but society isn't even going to notice if you leave, let alone crumble.

  7. Wtf is a "hersorty"? Anyone?

  8. Dude conveniently forgets that women faced an uphill battle to work outside the home, much less participate in academics, arts, or the military. Even with the odds stacked against them, we still got Marie Curie, Lise Meitner, Ada Lovelace, and Émilie du Châtelet, to name just a few famous contributors to modern science.

  9. "Throughout history, the health and well being of any civilization depended...ultimately...on the unsalaried labor of women."

    True, but technically, through most of that history, the health and well-being of any civilization also dependent on the unsalaried labor of men.

    That's one thing that's nice about modern economies: it's only recently that we've had enough actual "freedom" to see in sharp relief why women are getting the shaft. It was much harder to articulate what sexism was in, say, 45000 B.C, when everybody in the clan had a shit job and it was kind of hard to say which one was shitter than another.

  10. Yeah, I'd like to know if Jonas Salk could have invented the polio vaccine if Letitia Greer didn't invent the syringe, and how effective would those soldiers be if Stephanie Kwolek didn't invent Kevlar? I could go on and on. Women weren't even allowed to get patents initially in America and yet we can find dozens and dozens of important things used today that women invented. Sexists are idiots.

  11. Okay Raul...let us go with "recorded history."

  12. Tec, there is an attempt in some schools of feminism to change the limitations of our language by providing alternate words (like USian instead of American), and herstory was one of those words trotted out in the 60's. It's not really used anymore by feminists unless they are being facetious.

  13. Tec, I'm an idiot. I didn't even notice you were mocking his misspelling. So, ignore my previous post.

  14. Ah fuck. Who told him about all those polio vaccines I peed on?
